The AILA Landscape Architecture Awards program provides a key vehicle for the promotion of the achievements and work of landscape architects in Australia. The Awards process is an opportunity for public and peer recognition of landscape architect’s work, and demonstrates to industry, business, government and the wider community the positive impact the profession has on Australian lives through the planning and design of the built and natural environments.
The AILA Landscape Architecture Awards program has two stages: the first is a Chapter program and the second is the National program. In 2017, Qld, WA, SA, NSW, Vic & Tas will be presenting an Awards program, with the winners at Chapter level proceeding to the National Awards.
The ACT chapter decided they would not hold an awards program in 2017 and encourage practices to submit their projects into the 2018 program.
The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has recently announced the winners of the National Landscape Architecture Awards for 2017, held on Thursday 12 October, 2017, a celebration of the leading projects shaping green, open and public spaces across Australia.
This year the Jury reviewed 81 projects that had progressed through from the State awards programs. With 14 categories ranging from Civic Landscapes to Play Spaces, Infrastructure to Land Management, Urban Design to Cultural Heritage and more, 28 projects were selected for national recognition. Nine of those received the highest accolade, a National Award of Excellence.
